LibriVox recording of Robinson Crusoe, by Daniel Defoe. Read by Mark F. Smith.

Shipwrecked and castaway, Daniel DeFoe’s hard-luck character is still the standard for “growing where you’re planted.” Captured by pirates, he makes his break in a small boat and undergoes desperate adventures before winning his way back to civilization. But Crusoe proves willing to chance his luck a second time when, after sweating his way to prosperity as a planter in Brazil, he undertakes a voyage that isn’t needful… and is marooned on a small island off South America.

Crusoe shows the value of single-minded labor as he pursues ways to feed, shelter, and clothe himself. His ardent wish is to escape his island – why is it that the only people who come there are cannibals? But he spends more than two decades in isolation before acquiring a sidekick – the man Friday you’ve probably heard of. And who would guess his way to salvation would depend on leading a last-ditch fight against a shipful of mutineers?

For other castaway stories inspired by “Robinson Crusoe”, listen to “The Swiss Family Robinson” (http://snipurl.com/swiss_family) and “The Mysterious Island” (http://snipurl.com/mysterious_island). (Summary by Mark F. Smith)

Subject: I'm a big Mark Smith Fan
I read this book two or three times in my lifetime and never have I enjoyed it as much as this. There is something about an audio book that allows you to close your eyes and visualize thus eliminating the use of one of your senses. I am able to get a much better mental picture without using my tired old eyes to read the words. Mr. Mark Smith is one of the very best readers. Because of him I have read books that I otherwise would never have read. 5 stars to this old classic and to Mark Smith.

Subject: Adventure and philosphic musings
Robinson Crusoe's father counseled him to "seek the middle way", to be content with a settled and steady way of life. But Crusoe's restless nature lands him in one misadventure after another. Defoe moralizes a bit on his hero's foibles, and all in all, it makes for a great listen, well read by Mark Smith.

Subject: Great REading of Interesting Book
Mark Smith again brings his great reading skills to an interesting book. Be prepared for an "interplay of man, nature and religion" book with plenty of detail (you will know "too" much about domesticated goats). Enjoy.
